‘Fake news’: Ronaldo dismisses rape claims as lawyers set to sue German magazine

Cristiano Ronaldo has found himself in serious controversy after being accused by Kathryn Mayorga of assaulting her in 2009 after a night club in Las Vegas.

As of September 2018 the case has been reopened and our detectives are following up on information...

Mayorga has remained silent about what allegedly happened to her thanks to a $375,000 out-of-court settlement Ronaldo paid her in 2010, but said she made a decision to go public with her story because of the #MeToo movement.

Ronaldo and his legal team have slammed the rape claim as "fake news" and that the sexual interaction was "consensual".

In a statement, Ronaldo's lawyer Christian Schertz said: "the reporting in Spiegel is blatantly illegal." adding that they will be seeking compensation for moral damages.

The bill, which seeks to revive regulations repealed past year by the Federal Communications Commission , was signed by Gov. Scott Wiener, a Democrat who authored the legislation, said that this was "a historic day in California".

The Juventus superstar has denied the allegations claiming that the people that accused him only want to promote themselves by using his name.

Whatever the outcome of these allegations, Mayorga claims Ronaldo paid her $375,000 (around £287,000) for her silence nearly a decade ago.

"I'm a happy man and all good". "Ms. Mayorga's filed complaint, the physical evidence of her sexual assault, answers to written questions regarding the sexual assault attributed to Cristiano Ronaldo, the communications and conduct of the 'team" representing Cristiano Ronaldo, the circumstances surrounding the purported agreement for settlement and non disclosure, and the psychological injuries suffered by Ms. Mayorga are not 'fake news'".

When she refused, she says he took her into the bedroom and raped her as she screamed NO.

The complaint was first reported by the German magazine Der Spiegel. Ronaldo invited her, her friend and others to his penthouse suite.
